Driver Update has crippled my Machine
« on: July 09, 2021, 09:05:25 AM »
I have trusted Avast for my security needs for many many years but today I am writing this comment because I need to warn others.

DO NOT INSTALL DRIVER UPDATER

It crippled my machine: USB3 ports no longer work, SSD goes to sleep and will not wake up, printer is recognised but errors on print.  I am working my way through the damage but for a paid-for product this is shockingly bad.

AVast, I understand the business driver to increase your product offering and revenue streams, but this has made me question whether I can trust your products any more.
